Latchford is ‘a doer who thinks’

In Mr. Inrig’s screed to the media last week, he begged the question as to whether Prince  Edward County residents need a ‘thinker or a doer’ as our Mayor, inferring that our choice is either one or the other. Mr. Inrig, we need both. The fact that Sandy Latchford has begun erecting signs indicates to […]

Need more citizens to stand for election

The municipal election is fast approaching, with the deadline for nominations just two weeks away, on September 10.  At the present time, there are too few new candidates to ensure that electors are offered sufficient alternatives to the current policies and practices of Council.

Church demolition outrages Latchford

I am outraged that on a Sunday morning, without all the necessary permits in place and without appropriate safety precautions to protect passers-by and adjoining property, demolition began on the Methodist-Episcopal Church on Picton Main Street.

Wind turbine bylaw misleading

Regarding the Municipality of Arran-Elderslie’s request for support of its By-law No. 14-10 regarding wind turbines. I certainly appreciate the concerns of those who are bringing this motion forward, particularly the residents of Arran-Elderslie.

Who knows about Nicholson Island?

Just wondering if you know anything about Nicholson Island just off of Hyucks Point Road. (I think is the closest road to it) I can’t seem to find any info about it or its private hunting club. It’s rumoured to have a hovercraft to bring cars back and forth. It’s also rumoured to have had […]
